Our Honours program

What is Honours?

Interested students from Bachelor of Nursing degrees can apply to our one-year Bachelor of Nursing (Honours) program, opening the door to a future research degree.

Over the course of a year, students have the opportunity to conduct an independent research project, critically reviewing an area of nursing close to their hearts.

The program is designed to equip students with enhanced critical thinking skills. It allows students to investigate an idea that can improve the practice of nursing and the lives of patients, and opens the door to future research with a PhD or MPhil.

Honours students work with a supervisor who assists them throughout their study. The supervisor helps guide the project, and assists in formulating a research question, study design, ethics submissions, collecting results and writing and publishing of work.
